This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1873 edition. Excerpt: ...(Lat. publicanus; Or. telones). Collectors of the Roman revenue. The publicans of the N. T. were regarded as traitors and classed with sinners (Matt. ix. 11), harlots (xxi. 31, 32), and with the heathen (xviii. 17). No money received from them was permitted to go into the alms-box. They were not allowed to sit in judgment or give testimony. Some of them were the earliest disciples of John the Baptist and of Christ (Luke xviii. 13). PTJB'LITJS (public). Governor of Melita (Acts xxviii. 7, 8). PTJ'DENS (bashful). A Christian friend of Timothy (2 Tim. Iv. 21), at Rome. Martial, the Spanish poet, who lived at Rome about A. D. 66, mentions two or three friends, Pudens, Claudia, and Linus, who were the same as the friends of Paul and Timothy. PTJ'HITES (Jah is revelation). Descendants of the family of Kirjath-Jearim. PTTL. Error for Phut or Put. PTTL (king). An Assyrian king, the first mentioned in Scripture. He made an expedition against Menahem, king of Israel. But we learn from the Assyrian monuments that Jehu had already aid tribute to Shalmanezer II, as recorded on the lack obelisk. It is difficult, if not Impossible, to identify Pul with any known Assyrian king. None of the monuments have a name at all like Pul. The monuments tell us that Tiglath-pileser took tribute of Menahem, and they say nothing of Pul. He may have been a usurper holding power in Western Assyria, and able to descend Into Palestine; or a Babylonian, who grew to great command in those days. The period of Pul's invasion may be thus fixed: Tiglath-pileser records that he took tribute from Menahem--a war which was carried on from his fourth to his eighth year, about B. C. 741 to 737. Menahem reigned ten years, so that Pul's expedition could not be earlier than B. C. 751, or later..
